The legislative body will hold the first plenary sitting later this week. It is to discuss a number of bills that were approved by the Government last week, Prime Minister Ion Chicu informed after the meeting of the senior state officials.
IPN quoted the Premier as saying that Parliament will debate the legislative amendments related to the new program with the International Monetary Fund, the amendment of the state budget law and reallocations of funds.
Under the amendments to the state budget, the budget for the education system will be increased by almost 140 million lei, 105 million lei of which will be used to raise the salaries of teachers who will work after hours and to provide the schools with preventive anti-epidemic means.
Also, the pensioners and recipients of social allowances lower than 3,000 lei a month will get by 900 lei in lump sums.
Some of the localities situated near Chisinau, to which the solid waste from the capital city is taken, will be provided allocations. “This is a commitment made by the municipality to these localities,” stated Ion Chicu.
Besides the amendment of the state budget, the package approved by the Government on September 3 also includes harsher penalties for corruption, subsidization of interest rates on loans for farmers, provisions concerning the land tax, salary taxes and the moratorium on tax inspections.
Premier Chicu voiced hope that all the bills will be adopted as the financial situation of the country in the future will depend on them and that the MPs will show responsibility and less populism.
